Nerikoh is a traditional Japanese kneaded incense, that is hand-rolled and aged and fermented underground for several months or years. It is less known in the west and often burnt during the tea ceremony because they are a refined and smoke-free form of incense. Precious woods, herbs and spices are finely ground and bound together with honey and dried fruit, then rolled into tiny balls.
Nerikoh incense is not meant to be burnt, but rather warmed in traditional Koh-Doh cup, or for more convieneinct and accessible technique - place on top of an electric incense heater or aromatherapy lamp/diffuser. You'll only a tiny pinch of each ball to scent a room for hours on end, releasing gentle yet enveloping and exotic aroma.
Hanami Nerikoh is made from Delicate woods, iris, botanical musks and precious woods kneaded together with honey and apricots produce a unique floral-almond aroma that evoke the season of sakura and ume (Japanese plum) blossoms.
